My name is Dana. I'm a designer, front-end developer, and former co-founder of Aurous Group. I have over 10 years of experience in design and I started front-end development several years ago because I felt it would improve me as a designer. I believe that designers should be able to understand the back-end development process and adjust their work accordingly.
I specialize in the following design works: web, user experience/user interface, logos, interface, brand identity, business cards, products, posters, and advertising. I write HTML5, CSS3, and SCSS preprocessor. I use Gulp for automatic workflow and Git for version control and backups. I use Twitter Bootstrap for my CSS frameworks on most projects, but for smaller projects I write CSS from the ground up. I always stay up to date on the latest design and technology.
My software program of choice is Adobe Photoshop for web design, app design and other work, Illustrator for logos, brand identity and icons, InDesign for PDFs, and Gulp with my custom script to speed up the workflow. I continually optimize my setup to maximize workflow, save client costs, and deliver the best result possible.
I contribute to the community by writing tutorials and uploading respositories on GitHub to better help people in need. Here is one some of the gulp tutorials I've written "How to start using Gulp in minutes " for developers who want to start using Gulp and I made a kit "SCSS Bootstrap starter kit" for beginners and advanced users who want a base framework on which to start their new projects. I've tutored and trained students for web design and front-end development.
I work and maintain remotely for several long-term clients with their larger projects while dipping in and out of quick projects. I worked with Delta Airlines, Millers, University of Houston, Payday and some other companies. I also worked on a few open source projects which have gone viral on mainstream media and greenlit on Steam.
